#1 Hawkeyes dominate Michigan State 37-0


IOWA CITY -- Led by two pins and an upset at 133 pounds, the top-ranked University of Iowa wrestling team blanked its sixth opponent of the 2009-10 season Sunday night, beating Michigan State, 37-0, at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The six dual season shut-outs is an Iowa school record, beating the previous record of five set in the 1980-81, 1989-90, 1990-91 and 2008-09 seasons. The Hawkeyes also picked up their 56th straight dual win and their 23rd straight win at Carver-Hawkeye Arena, while remaining undefeated at 18-0 (4-0 Big Ten) this season. Iowa held Michigan State (7-4-1, 1-3 Big Ten) to one takedown on the night.

Up next for Iowa is a trip West to face Utah Valley (7-2, 2-1 WWC) Saturday, February 6 at 8 p.m. (CT) in Hawkeye senior Phillip Keddy's hometown of Vernal, UT. Iowa will wrestle the Wolverines at the Uintah High School Gymnasium. Hawkeye junior Luke Lofthouse and true freshman Ethen Lofthouse are also Utah natives, graduating from Mountain Crest High School in Avon.
